Mmm
See he's organized
And he's on the ball
Never miss a day of school
And he's a underdog

Wanna learn more and more
'Cause his mama taught him good
He's about to change the face
Of yo ghetto neighborhood

Walking to school today
Saw a brother on the streets
Seem like errthang was cool
'Cept the brother's packing heat
Oop, oop

Then everything changed
'Cause he saw his own wings
And his mother was sad
They will last, time will past 'cause I

What am I talkin' 'bout?
Everybody know what dis song's about
Dey be trying to hide the history
But they know who we are

Do you want to see?
Everybody rise to this degree?
Raise ya hands high if you agree
Just say yesire ooh, yesire
If you agree say
Yesire ooh, yesire

Ugh, come on, ugh
Break it down say
Mmm, mmh
Hey, hey

Hey

Now to my folks, think dey living sweet
Well, dey gone fuck around and push delete
To the girls on prescriptions pills
I know how ya feel

To my boys in Iraqi fields
This ain't no time to kill
To my girls in therapy
See I'ma tell you this fo' free
To my folks up on the hill
With the cake and dollar bills

You need to watch da dirty cop
Dey the one you need to watch
I'm talking 'bout the dirty cop
Dey the one you need to watch, stop

You get the wake up call
When you saw the buildings fall
Bowties with the final call
Get ya money dollar bill, ya'll
Bowties with the final calls
Get ya down the bill, ya'll

To my folks on the picket line
Don't stop til you change dey mind
I got love fo' my folks
Baptized when the levy broke
We gone keep marchin' on
Until you hear dat freedom song

And if you think about turning back
I got the shotgun on ya back
And if you think about turning back
I got the shot gun on ya back
Bla
(Blat)

What am I talking bout?
Everybody know what dis song's about
Dey be trying to hide the history
But they know who we are

Do you want to see?
Everybody rise to the next degree?
Raise ya hands high if you agree
Just say yesire ooh, yesire
If you agree say
Yesire ooh, yesire

Hey, hey, hey
